Dear WW-P Community,

Earlier this month, we celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week throughout our schools. I want to express my deep appreciation to our WW-P educators for all they do for our students, families, the local community, and each other. As we celebrate our educators, it is always great to see our students sharing notes of thanks, wearing favorite colors, and creating works of art. These tokens are greatly appreciated. Thank you to our PTAs, PTSAs, and families for showering our teachers, nurses, secretaries, support staff, IAs, school counselors, therapists, administrators, bus drivers, Class III officers, Eyes on the Door staff and custodial staff with love, support, luncheons, breakfast and more.

To kick off Teacher Appreciation Week, the District announced our Educators of the Year honorees. WW-P created this special recognition program to honor an educator in each school building. These amazing educators were selected by a committee consisting of colleagues, parents, and administrators. The WW-P Board of Education will honor this amazing group June 11, 2024, at the District Celebration. Congratulations to our 2024 recipients:

  • Stefanie Burnett, 1st grade teacher- Dutch Neck Elementary School

  • Mary Ann Harpel, 2nd grade teacher - Maurice Hawk Elementary School

  • Kelly Fox, teacher of special education- Town Center Elementary School
